••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• A Message from the


••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Welcome to Waxhaw! As we enter a new year, I’m looking forward to continuing to lead the Town of Waxhaw as Mayor. During my first two years as Mayor, amid a global pandemic and all its challenges, the Board of Commissioners and Town Staff members didn’t slow down. As a team, we worked fervently and successfully to activate plans and initiatives that had been previously discussed but had yet to be put into motion for many years. We know our residents are passionate about infrastructure, a new downtown park, and transparency. We’ve taken strides to improve and have better visibility in each area with a new Land Development Code and a revised Town Master Plan. We launched a new website in 2021, which makes it easier to find information and report concerns, as well as making sure that you can find Waxhaw project updates at any time on the website. Keeping residents involved and engaged in town leadership’s decision-making process is pivotal to my role as Mayor. If you are looking to move to Waxhaw or have just moved here, Waxhaw has much to offer. My wife, Camine, and I love all that our community offers: diverse cuisine partnered with professional business services, a vibrant and growing parks and recreation community, unique shops, and boutiques just to name a few things. As the father of two grown children, I understand the values of family, safety, and planning. I look forward to working together with the Board of Commissioners, the Town Staff, and our residents to create a dynamic, well-managed, beautiful, and sustainable Waxhaw.

Plans are underway for the Town to construct a new Town Campus to better serve public and operational needs. This government services hub will include new facilities for Public Services, Parks & Recreation and Town Hall. The new Town Hall will be approximately 4 times larger than the current building and allow plenty of space for town staff and operations to grow as needed. Located adjacent to Kensington Elementary, at the intersection of Waxhaw-Marvin Road and Kensington Drive, this 17-acre campus will provide convenient access to services for residents and operations. The property also connects Town Creek Park to Nesbit Park opening up more park and recreational opportunities once the campus is built. The Town has contracted with ADW Architects for the design and construction administration. The projected cost is $976,800.00

Community Well & Jug

R.J. Belk Building

Waxhaw Library

The well was originally dug circa 1900 to serve the trains and crews of the depot and remained in use until the 1920’s. The current well replica, built in 1989, commemorates Waxhaw’s original community well which once stood near this spot. The large clay urn was originally used at the RodmanHeath Mill. The 1899 mill was the town’s leading employer and played a vital role in the town’s economy for many years. In the mid-1980’s the jug was moved from the mill to the location of the current Dare Steele Memorial Garden. Around 2003 it was again moved to its current downtown location near the well.

Located directly across from the Pedestrian Bridge, this historic building was home of the Belk store from 1894 to 1938. This building has served many purposes after the Belk store closed. In 1970, the Belk family donated the building to the Waxhaw Woman’s Club and restorations were made. Currently, the Waxhaw Woman’s Club rents the building for community events, private parties, and special occasions.

Over 17,000 items, including books, DVDs, videos, books on tape and CD, young adult books, genealogy, CDs, magazines, newspapers and more.

This area was home to the Waxhaw Indians long before the European settlers came to the area. The Waxhaw Indians were allied with the Catawbas in their wars with the Cherokee and were almost wiped out in 1715 by the Yamasee War and by diseases brought by the early settlers to the area. Soon afterwards German, English, Scottish, Welsh and other European settlers arrived in the area to establish a settlement. The land was fertile and trade was made easy by the proximity of the Catawba River and the main trading path which ran from Petersburg, Virginia to Augusta, Georgia. The Town of Waxhaw was chartered in 1889, making it the third oldest town in Union County. Even though Waxhaw is one of the oldest communities in Union County it wasn't well known until 1888 when railroad tracks from Atlanta were laid. It was clear that this area needed a dependable means of overland transportation. It was increasingly difficult to deliver and receive goods to and from the supply centers in the south. Today, Waxhaw is a vibrant community that has progressed from those humble beginnings. It has come a long way from it’s early roots as indian land and still takes the time to proudly remember its past. The most noteworthy native of this region is Andrew Jackson, 7th president of the United States. President Jackson was born in the Waxhaw area in 1767. An ongoing dispute centers on whether he was born in North Carolina or just to the south in South Carolina. He was born in one of two cabins, less than 100 yards apart, but because the state line ran between them, it’s unknown which state he was actually born in. Jackson lived in North Carolina until he moved west to Tennessee, at the age of 21.

Fear Free Animal Hospital Design [ Dr. Susan Bonilla, MS, CVA, CCRP, CACP ]

You may have recently heard the term Fear Free from a friend or seen it advertised. Founded in 2016 by Dr. Marty Becker, it comprises a group of different veterinarian professionals and pet experts gathered together for the single purpose of preventing and alleviating fear, anxiety, and stress in pets by inspiring and educating the veterinary professionals and people who care for them. Since its inception, over 30,000 veterinary and pet professionals have committed to becoming Fear Free certified. In 2019, Passionate Paws Animal Hospital proudly joined an elite group of practices to attain the honored distinction of becoming a Fear Free Certified Practice. This certification means that all our doctors and team members on staff, including our groomers, are all individually trained as Fear Free professionals. Being Fear Free certified validates much of what we have already practiced since opening over four years ago. Fear Free certified practices will have successfully implemented Fear Free into all aspects of their business: culture and leadership, client education, staff training, the facility, and most importantly, patient visits. My husband and I built our hospital for pet parents because we are pet parents and so is everyone on our team. We set out to create a unique experience for both pets and pet parents that put your furbaby at the center, promoted and delivered a Fear Free experience, provided integrative pet healthcare, and partnered with you as the primary caregiver in developing customized treatment plans. When we started our design, we knew nothing of the Fear Free program, we just knew there had to be a better experience for pets and pet parents than the traditional vet visit so many of us have experienced in the past. A visit to the vet should be pleasant and fun, not stressful and fearful. In order to do this we completely reinvented the look, feel, and even smell that has long been associated with a typical animal hospital. But, we didn’t stop at design. We also reexamined our approach to patient care and pet parent service to ensure a calm, pleasant, and fun experience for pets and pet parents alike. At Passionate Paws, we strive to make every patient visit a Fear Free experience as every team member wants your pet to be happy when he or she walks through the door of our animal hospital. Free Free doesn’t mean that your pet will never experience anything uncomfortable at our hospital—he or she may be injured or ill, after all—but it does mean that we make every effort to reduce any fear, anxiety, and stress related to examinations, procedures, and grooming. Here are a few of the ways we help your pet stay comfortable and relaxed from arrival to departure. When you first arrive at our hospital your senses and your pet’s will be greeted with pleasing smells from our aromatherapy diffuser, designed to calm and relieve anxiety. No hospital should smell like an animal hospital, and ours never does. To ease our patients even more, we have designed our waiting area to be species specific, with cats and dogs on opposite sides. Taking it one step further, we built a cat-only exam room (no dogs allowed) to provide an added layer of calmness for our feline friends. For those dogs that are a bit more nervous, we can bring you right away into our side door that leads directly into an exam room. For our anxious cats, we can bring them directly into the cat-only exam room upon arrival. Upon entering the exam room, you and your pet will notice that performing exams on a cold, slick table are a thing of the past. For our dog patients, we provide comfortable bedding on the floor, where our medical team conducts the majority of their examina-

It has always been important to us to make your pet’s veterinary visit as pleasant as possible.

tions and procedures. For our cat patients, we offer a cat tree as well as warm bedding to perform the majority of the examinations and procedures. Each room is equipped with natural pheromone diffusers that emit calming substances into the air that are specific to dogs and cats, and play species-specific music bioacoustically engineered to calm your pet (and maybe even you.) These examples and more await each and everyone of our patients and pet parents at Passionate Paws, providing a very unique one-of-a-kind experience. Our hospital becoming a Fear Free Certified Practice is just the natural progression from what my husband and I envisioned from the start. We are so excited to continue to improve the experience for our existing pets and pet parents and for those that are still to come.

Dr. Susan Bonilla is the owner of the award-winning Passionate Paws Animal Hospital in Waxhaw and our new location in Matthews/Weddington, offering traditional and complementary treatment options such as acupuncture, chiropractic, and physical therapy. Full-service grooming is also available at Waxhaw. You can reach her at 704-256-7576 or e-mail at Hello@PassionatePaws.Vet
